Virtually Wrinkle-Free Facial Skin is Treatments Away With Injectables

By: Kim Burke


Are you self-conscious about your skin? Many people are unhappy with the deep, persistent lines between the brows and around their eyes and mouth. One way to achieve a virtually wrinkle-free facial appearance is through cosmetic injectables. Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers at Kiss Aesthetics may provide a smoother complexion without invasive measures or plastic surgery.

Certified nurse practitioner Kim Burke can make custom recommendations about injectables during a skin assessment in Minooka, IL. Call now to learn about revolutionary brands like BOTOX®, Dysport®, JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, RHA®, and Sculptra®.

Where do fine lines form?

Most wrinkles form due to a combination of sun exposure and the natural aging process. Because the skin around the eyes and mouth is thinner than elsewhere on the face, these areas are especially vulnerable to wrinkling. Many people refer to them as forehead lines, Crow's feet, and marionette lines.

There are many ways to address the problem of fine lines, ranging from at-home treatments to plastic surgery. The best way to achieve essentially wrinkle-free skin may depend on your specific goals. However, cosmetic injectables are a popular choice because they provide excellent results with little downtime.

What are wrinkle relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxers work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause dynamic lines. Commonly known by the brand names BOTOX and Dysport, neuromodulators smooth away problem areas quickly and effectively. BOTOX was the first product of its kind and continues to be popular today, especially for forehead lines and Crow’s feet.

What are dermal fillers?

Fillers add volume beneath the skin to lift and plump sunken areas. This minimizes static wrinkles and improves the appearance of volume loss in the cheeks and under-eye area. JUVÉDERM and Restylane are two of the most popular brands in this category of cosmetic injectables.

What is treatment like?

At Kiss Aesthetics, Kim Burke strives to provide natural-looking results that still reflect your personality. During a consultation, our staff will carefully assess your skin and overall aesthetic goals to help decide which injectable is right for your specific needs in Minooka, IL.

The injection process for wrinkle relaxers takes just a few minutes. Kim will cleanse your skin and then use a fine needle to administer the product into different muscles. If you choose dermal fillers, we inject the filler beneath the skin with a syringe. The amount of filler needed depends on the areas being treated.

What is recovery like?

There’s no downtime required after getting wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers. You may experience redness near the injection sites, but this should dissipate within a few days. Kiss Aesthetics will provide aftercare instructions to help ensure optimal results and minimize unwanted side effects.

When to expect smoother results

Both kinds of injectables provide immediate outcomes that will continue to improve over the next few days. However, wrinkle relaxers typically take a few days to kick in, while dermal fillers offer more immediate volume.

Results from wrinkle relaxers can last up to four months, while dermal fillers can last up to a year based on the brand and amount used. Many people choose to combine the two for more comprehensive outcomes. We can discuss your unique needs during an assessment.
